ABA League Round 20, Sunday, 1.3.2020:
Where? Arena Bonifika, Koper
Story of the game: The Sunday’s night match between Koper Primorska and Cibona is quite important for both sides. At one side, Koper Primorska are trying to get back into the Playoffs race and in order to do that they will have to win the upcoming match at home court. On the other side, Cibona are doing their best to escape the relegation zone and it is quite clear how much a win in Koper would mean to the Wolves in their attempt to keep the ABA League status.
In the first part of the season Cibona triumphed against Koper Primorska in Zagreb in one of the most exciting game endings of the season. Back then, Cibona’s center Filip Bundović scored the game-winning 2-pointer at the 4th quarter buzzer.
Who will prevail this time? We are about to find out on Sunday evening around 22:00.
Match-up in focus: Nejc Barić (Koper Primorska) vs. Matic Rebec (Cibona). They are both point guards, they are in excellent form and they’ve been one of the best players of their teams in the 2nd half of the season. It should be a very interesting duel to watch.
Head to head in the regional league: In total 0:1; In Koper: 0:0.
